Pamela 11/06/10 11:20 am When the Bufflehead Ducks arrive, there will be snow in 7--10 days. (They arrived this week on Buzzards Bay.)
martyc35 11/06/10 12:43 pm I grew up in Portland, Oregon, where it rains more than 54 inches a year, that is, more often than not. When I was a kid, we had exactly the right folklore: Step on a spider, rain by Friday. You could almost bet on it!

Trishrg 11/06/10 10:42 pm The Buffleheads are back down in Southern Cal..... I'll wait for the snow....
It could happen..
Celeste 11/07/10 04:39 am Oh no! Not ready for snow yet!!!!! Actually I never am ready for it!
Melanie 11/07/10 07:31 am I love buffleheads. They come in huge numbers to my creek. A few years ago I got a call from a friend who works in the apartment complex office who asked me to come identify some birds. In her excitement she described them as looking just like penguins. I assured her she was not seeing penguins and when I got arrived there buffleheads all over the place. So now we refer to them as "Watergate Penguins".

Although there are individual sightings of buffleheads down here through most of the year, they started moving through Cape May last week. Mo snow yet, but it has been in the mid 30's at night and around 50 during the day - about 10° cooler than it normally is this time of year. I've actually had t turn the heat on.
martyc35 11/07/10 12:40 pm I'm with Trish on this one. I've seen buffleheads all my adult life on the West Coast, yet they have not brought snow where I've lived:-).
